JSRCG in Redfern, NSW was established in 2010 to improve the utilisation of a valuable but neglected piece of public land.
We have created an attractive and productive garden that involves local community members and businesses.
Thank you to City of Sydney and the many businesses and individuals, who have helped make the garden possible.
Here are some pics of a very cute community garden I came across in the 3rd arrondissement in the heart of Paris! It's called the Potager des Oiseaux, which means 'The Birds' Vegetable Garden'. I met a few gardeners there on a sunny Sunday eating lunch. The set up is very similar to ours - shared beds and harvest. It's locked up during the week from the public but is opened every Sunday for public viewing as it's next to the market called Les Enfants Rouges (named for a former orphanage where the children wore red jackets).
Here's an email I received from Bruno, one of the gardeners!
Thanks Lydia for your curiosity and shared interest : we are always happy to meet our counterparts from all over the garden world, be it down under...
